Most Helpful

Interesting, but not one of Hardy's best

This was a mildly enjoyable listen, interesting for the astronomical aspects of the plot and the local dialogue. The plot was somewhat contrived and the prose in general not up to the brilliance of Hardy's better work such as "The Mayor of Casterbridge".
Michael Kitchen did a solid job of narration.
